While running backs or outside linebackers continually engage their minds in game-planning and making split-second decisions on the field, I’m simply see-ball; kick-ball. No imagination. No intellectual exercise. Quarterbacks can be artists; shifting formations, changing plays, commanding 90-yard, no-huddle, game-winning drives. Kickers must be machines. Like your dishwasher or lawnmower, I’m all about repeatability. When you push the start button, yank the pull-rope, or trot me onto the field, all that matters is achieving the intended result. Clean the grease off the fry pan, circulate the mower blade, score the three points. While my teammates use their brains to out-game their opponents, I’ve learned to turn my mind off so as not to out-think myself.

THIS IS YOUR ONE AND ONLY WARNING: do not discuss online illegal streams in the comments, in FanPosts or FanShots. We have already had to clean up a lot of discussions asking for streams to watch the game on Sunday. Yes, blackouts are annoying, but free online streams are still illegal and we're held liable for any discussions, requests or links posted on here. You have been warned. Any requests for streams or the posting of URLs/links to illegal stream websites will result in a ban from BFTB.

After a Sunday of Chargers football excellence, Coach Turner decided the game ball deservedly had to be given to the entire offensive and defensive line. The defensive line held one of the league’s best rusher’s in Chris Johnson, to a total 17-yards rushing while the Chargers offensive line allowed for 148 total yards rushing and Rivers to go 24 for 32, with 284 yards, and 3 TDs. A final score of 38-10 on a blistering hot day in San Diego puts the Chargers at 2-0 on the season.

The Chargers have signed cornerback Greg Gatson from the team’s practice squad and released guard-tackle Reggie Wells. The 5-11, 170-pound Gatson, who wears No. 31, was signed in May as an undrafted rookie from Arkansas. He collected 15 tackles on defense during the preseason and one on special teams.

Chargers OLB Larry English insists he's finally healthy for the first time in his four-year career. "For the first time in a long time, I don't worry about my foot," English said. "I don't even think about it. I just go out there and go play." English had two sacks and seven tackles in the preseason, and will be looking to earn a role in sub-packages behind Shaun Phillips, Jarret Johnson, and Melvin Ingram.
